[McIDAS #OTI-698264]: GOES-west ADDE Server hung

Hi Fred,

We did a visual inspection of the dish, cabling, etc. before going
to the computer room that houses the ingest hardware, but we saw
nothing obvious.  I have to admit, however, that I did not look up
the barrel of the LNB to see if some bees or wasps had setup house
keeping.  I will check this out when I head back over to the dish
either this afternoon or tomorrow.

Thanks again...
